Mold is a fungus that thrives on moisture and can be found inside and outside your home. As mold grows, it releases spores that float through the air. In small quantities these spores are usually harmless, but when they land on a moist surface they grow and become more dangerous (dependent on the strain of mold). Given the right environment, growing mold can potentially spread further into your home, causing damage, health issues, and resulting in expensive repairs.
Mold Testing is important to know what type of mold is growing and to find out if it could be a danger to your health and home. Our team will perform an air sample test to see what kind of mold could potentially be growing in your home. Air testing is performed to determine whether there is hidden mold in the house. Mold spores float around in the air until they find an area conductive to growth. If the surface is moist, mold spores can take hold and grow.
Our team recently was called to a job in Tarentum, PA 15084 for visable mold in the basement. Without testing our team wouldn't know what kind of mold was present and how aggressive we needed to be with treatment.
